Ok, since we got Boris looking so good I am thinking about if there is anything I can do for Shep. He is 15, 1/2 Golden 1/2 American Eskimo. He very seldom needs a bath. he used to love to be brushed but hates it now. I think his skin is sensitive because of his age and he has lots of lumps and bumps. His coat has that thick undercoat that looks like matting but it's not. Those hairs that are tangled together and causes his hair to "part"..I hope you know what I mean..hard to describe. I gently brush him often but it doesn't really do squat for the under coat. I tend to just want to leave him alone because he is such a good boy and he is so old...I just want him to be happy. Should I just leave it as is or give him a bath and try to tackle this under coat mess. It would be distressing for him and I don't know of an easy way to deal with it.
